While I ordered Shrimp & Scallop Linguine Alla Vodka my young daughter ordered the childrens spaghetti and meat ball .... I looked at hers, then I looked at mine..... besides the 3 little shrimp and 3 tiny scallops the size of a pencil eraser, I couldn't tell the difference. The sauce looked and tasted identical. When I mentioned this to... More

Three of four of us ordered pasta dishes which come with soup or salad. The 4 year old only eats chicken fingers and plain spaghetti. Two of us ordered two different soups and one had a salad. The Chicken soup was very salty and the chunks of chicken were too large to eat as is and had to be cut,... More

All was good. I didn't have to wait because it was a party of 1. The only thing I regret is not having enough room in my stomach to try a dessert.

Went to Carrabba's today with my coworkers. I ordered a personal pizza with mushrooms. My pizza was slightly overcooked (edges were pretty charred), and there was a lot of pepper flavor on it. Other than that, the pizza was good. I would hold back on adding so much pepper, since this is a spice that people can add on their... More

Cararabba's never disappoints. They have a great variety of food, including "lite" entrée options. The "lite" options are actually quite flavorful and filling, unlike some chain restaurants. The wine list isn't extensive but offers something for everyone's taste. Only complaint: they really need to bring back their manicotti dish

We actually ate at this restaurant every night we were in town. The Italian Salad with house dressing is wonderful...and so is all else on their menu. Chicken Bryan...my wife's fave...and I love the Chicken Parm or Veal Marsala......nice staff..very friendly. One a single complaint...stay away from their sausages. Meatballs yum-o.....sausage, not so much.,...

This is the best place to go with family because there is something for everyone here. It's really tasty and I like the deal they had called Amore Monday ... in that deal I got an appetizer and my chicken pasta. It's full of flavor and garlic!

Stayed in Allentown on the way from the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains to New York City. We booked a hotel in the area of Carrabba's and the restaurant was recommended by the hotel. We studied the menu and ordered takeout since we have a small dog. I went to pick up the takeout and ordered a glass of Italian wine... More
